The simulator is a true-to-life virtual world driving environment pre-loaded with urban, suburban, rural and other scenarios that will be used for New Operator Training, Operator Refresher Training, and Commercial Driver's License Training.
DART's training specialists are currently receiving certification in order to conduct the various Operator Training courses. The training emphasized judgment and proper driving tactics to enhance safe driving and timeliness by operators. The cost of the virtual bus simulator was approximately $206,000.
